Love the food..

This is one of the places we visit over and over again. The wait can be long, but it is worth it. The staff is friendly, service is great, and food is awesome! Families with kids will love this place too.

For Destin seafood at lunch prices, this was a good choice. Ask for the lunch specials. Most are around $10 and come with fries and slaw if fried or corn and new potatoes if grilled. Hush puppies are good and the waitress was very pleasant. Would definitely go here again.

As you drive down Calhoun Avenue to get to Dewey Destin, you will think that I am crazy and there is no way that a quality restaurant is nearby. But stick to it. At the end of the road at the bay you will find Dewey Destin. It is located on pier jutting into the bay. You go to the... More

The scallop appetizer was really good, but they were covered with a very rich sauce (not great when on a diet) and personally prefer just some white wine/garlic - something lighter. My grouper was with the pecan-crusted toping. Again, the sauce with it was a bit too rich for me - although delicious. The hush puppies were great. My server... More

Get your oysters extra crispy unless you like 'em otherwise. Great location, sit outside, go when others don't. Really is a shack so don't expect anything different. Food is better than average and ambiance is very funky.

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We have been going to Destin every summer for many years, but had never tried Dewey Destin. The food was great! Atmosphere was casual, but nice. Service was excellent. I would definitely not miss this restaurant when in Destin.

You cannot visit Destin without eating at Dewey Destin's Restaurant! The best fried shrimp ever!! The best hushpuppies ever!! There are two locations...if you want to eat outside at pick-nic-tables on at pier over the water....the original location is the one to go to. It looks like a shack but don't be deceived...the food is wonderful! The new location is... More

This was recommended by my mom who loves seafood and regularly vacations in this area. This was my first trip to the area as an adult and wow, will I come back. It is perfectly situated to have a glorious view of the ultra white beaches, with the jettys behind. We witnessed a perfect sunset there (see pic). But the... More
